Trouble is in Cobra City! Gangsters roam the streets, and gang bosses seem to have taken the power in the city. Who is responsible for the situation? It is up to the private investigator JR Knight and his lovely companion Faythe to find out what is going on.
Cobra Mission is based on an earlier release of the same name, but was developed from scratch and has many important differences that make it an independent title rather than a port. Many locations and characters were completely re-designed, and story events added or altered. There are also more different enemy types and many more items to find in this version.
Like the original game, it is a Japanese anime-style RPG with erotic content. The game takes place in Cobra City, a large town divided into several parts. The player navigates the characters through the city in top-down view, visiting various buildings, talking to people, buying weapons and items, gathering information, and fighting random enemies. During battles, the game switches to first-person perspective. Both JR and Faythe can be controlled as a party.
Unlike the earlier version, the battles are not turn-based. The player must click on the picture of the enemy in real time to inflict damage. The mouse cursor is always slightly moving during battles, which makes aiming more difficult. Many enemies have weak and strong areas, and it is necessary to aim precisely in order to have success.
Following completion of major quests, the protagonist rescues young women who become grateful, giving him their telephone numbers. It is then possible to visit them and participate in erotic mini-games: The player is given a certain number of turns, during which he has to perform the correct actions to seduce the girl successfully.
First thing's first; I tried calling the phone number on the title screen. The number's been disconnected. We're off to a great start.
Second thing's after first; there's actual nudity in this game. Like, right after the intro/credits. So prepare for that.
As for the actual game; the controls are weird, but I found out how moving and the combat system works. To move around the map, click the direction you want to go in (on the map with your characters) and move your mouse as the characters automatically shuffle along. To stop, click again. Don't bother using the arrows in the bottom right corner- it's gross. As for combat, it's easy to just move your weapon over the enemy's face and click as fast as possible before their attack meter goes up. I never found a need to defend or run away.
Take the delivery job to get access to homes that would otherwise be closed. I never figured out how to access the delivery map though, so I just tried breaking into every house until some worked. This game is mostly just exploring until you find things to move the plot forward (if you can call this game having a plot). You can find extra money and ammo behind potted plants and water fountains.
I ended up taking the boner potion in the pharmacy, and got all the way to the train tracks before the poison kicked in. I ran across town and killed two enemies before getting to the pharmacy but I died in the middle of the lobby because I ran out of time. It was bullshit. If you take the boner potion for $100 stay near the pharmacy for the anecdote.
Head my warnings.

Just like I remember, except...
Works for me, but savegames do not persist between loads. I assume this functionality hasn't been implemented yet.
